Our approach and activities

In the Data Sharing Coalition, we explore and document generic agreements for data sharing, we define and realise cross-sectoral use cases, and we share knowledge to support the development of existing and new data sharing initiatives.

About the Data Sharing Coalition

The Data Sharing Coalition works on several cross-sectoral use cases of data sharing. In these use cases, organisations from different domains collaboratively define and realise a use case that creates new value from cross-sectoral data sharing.
